You’ve heard of “Smartwatches”, Agbara Life brings you “Smart luggage”.
What is “Smart Luggage”?
Smart Luggage are pieces of luggage with electronic functions stored inside of the bag, along with security features that protects hardware, devices, and items in your wallet. The Smart Luggage market has witnessed high growth in countries such as the United States, Canada, and Asia Pacific regions. The wearable tech market is said to be worth an estimated $34 Billion dollars by 2020
Back in 2015, Canalys reported that the “market to watch”, were smartwatches, as units began to soar. With over 12 million Apple watches sold worldwide from 2015, to 20 million and counting as of date. Since then, innovations in technology now include a variety of products from hearables to medical devices.
Companies such as Agbara Life, are creating innovative, wearable technology to improve the everyday traveler’s experiences, while ensuring that their items are safe. An example, some of today’s top travel complaints are lost, or damaged luggage. A large number of airlines do a horrible job at ensuring luggage is properly checked, tracked, monitored and handled with care. Passengers checked in 4.27 billion bags in 2018, with an average 5.69 bags per thousand being mishandled. Brands like Agbara Life solves the issue of mishandled bags, including destruction of the luggage by using high quality, durable fabric to make their products.
Smart luggage brands are adding features such as GPS tracking systems, to help reduce lost luggage. Imagine being able to track your luggage with a GPS installed in your bag.
Have you ever been in the airport and needed to access Wi-Fi to check an important email, however, you were unable to do so due to lack of available hot spots? “Smart Luggage” literally can save you from the frustration of searching for an available Wi-Fi access, enabling you to easily connect to hot spots, while on the go.
